Title: Artist, Owner
Company: Carol Hartman Fine Art
Location: Red Lodge, Montana, United States
Inspired to pursue a career as an artist from as early as two years old, Ms. Hartman has dedicated her life and career to documenting her own experiences through her personal brand of artistic expression. Throughout her career, her interactive electronic installations, especially those dealing with biases and prejudices, as well as her current series of large oil paintings, have been exhibited in multiple galleries across the U.S. and Europe. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts in fine arts, graphic design and K-12 art education from Montana State University in 1971 and a Master of Arts in fine arts from California State University, Fresno in 1984. She began her career as the art director for the Learjet Program, before establishing herself as the gallery director at California State University, Sacramento from 1989 to 1992, the tour director of Tauck World Discovery from 1997 to 2003 and a grant writer for Marjorie Mason Domestic Violence Center from 2003 to 2004. Returning to her alma mater, she found notable success as the gallery director at California State University, Fresno from 1992 until her retirement in 2009.
Influenced by the beauty of her native Montana, Ms. Hartman is currently curating and producing visual documentation of those early homesteading days in the region, the many trails used to travel to Montana, and how it has altered the American soil. Among a plethora of awards and accolades, she is proud to have been selected for inclusion in the Florence Biennale IX in 2015 and the International Contemporary Arts Volume VIII in 2013. Furthermore, she is honored to have received $2.3 million for her grant writing for the Marjorie Mason Center. Above all, she enjoys collaborating with people in her hometown in Montana and seeing the genuine reactions and excitement in the faces of those who view her art. Looking toward the future, she aims to submit her artwork into three reputable galleries, continue her involvement with the Art and Heritage Museum and provide digital lectures in an effort to connect to as many people as possible.
